Intellectualized - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Not a problem currently existing,
Can be seriously fixed...
To be revealed as is and dealt with!
Not if a continuous running away from it,
Has denial disguised...
With a hidden fear that masquerades.

And today...
There are more problems created,
By those who believe that not facing them...
To eliminate,
Will eventually erase them from existence.
Only to strengthen the reality of them.

No matter who rejects their appearance.
Or the impressiveness that addresses,
Something other than what they are.
And a problem witnessed,
Can not be anything else but what it is to rid.
Regardless how it is intellectualized to diminish.
